Iran faces arm-twisting demands ahead of key nuclear talks

TAGS: Conflict, Meeting, Nuclear, Iran, USA, Israel

The six-party party talks on Iran’s nuclear program, called “the last chance” by the West, may now be in jeopardy. The new requirements by the US and Israel towards Iran’s nuclear program have been rejected by the country as “irrational.”

­Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak is now demanding that Tehran discloses the entire history of its nuclear activity and opens all its nuclear facilities to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The demand comes a day after media reports that the US and its Western allies plan to put forward a new requirement for Iran to immediately close and ultimately dismantle its recently completed nuclear facility at Fordo.

Located deep in the mountains, the Fordo research center has been built underground so that the enemy cannot attack and destroy it. Its inaccessibility to potential air strikes has been of particular concern to the US and Israel.

Iran has called the demands “irrational” with the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, Fereydoon Abbasi Davani, saying that Fordo was built so deep underground only because of the constant threat of attacks.

"If they do not threaten us and they guarantee that no aggression will occur, then there will be no need for countries to build facilities underground,” he said. “They should change their behavior and language."

The talks between Iran and representatives of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany, known as P5+1 are scheduled for April 13-14 in Istanbul. However, Turkey has not yet officially confirmed it will host the negotiations.

The US and Israel are set to demand that Iran halts the production of uranium which they consider just a few steps from weapons grade and also end the shipment of existing stockpiles “to a neighboring, devoted country.”

"We do not see any rationale for such a request from the P5+1," Davani said. He added that Iran would continue producing small amounts of 20 per cent enriched uranium to fulfil its medical needs.

Tension around Tehran has been running high recently, with aggressive rhetoric from both sides. Following the new set of sanctions and the oil embargo, the West now sees the upcoming negotiations as the “last chance for talks.”

But the latest demands from the US and Israel that Iran abandons its newly completed site make any chance of agreement at the meeting between Iran and the six world powers unlikely.

The reaction of the Iranian authorities during the talks cannot be predicted, believes Leonid Gusev from the Moscow State University of International Relations.

“Some believe Iranians may make some concessions,” Gusev told RT. “They did this repeatedly over the past years. When someone pressed really hard on them, they back-pedaled slightly.”

“On the flip side,” Gusev added, “being under pressure, Iranians want to show that they can hold ground and resist this pressure.”

Such categorical demands for a halt to Iran’s nuclear program are a very tough psychological subject and the country will most likely adopt the “policy of flexible response” only in the event of inevitable military attack from the US or Israel, Gusev believes.

But even if this “last chance” for peaceful solution is wasted, the Nobel Peace Prize winning US president, who is running for his second term, is unlikely to openly call for an attack on Iran, Gusev believes. Alas, the US would gladly let Israel do the dirty work, if Iran’s nuclear ambitions cross a certain “red line,” he added.

The problem is that the US will decide where this line should be drawn, Gusev said. Iran has repeatedly claimed they do not have enough capabilities to enrich uranium to the 90 per cent purity level needed for it to be weapons grade.

According to official data Iran has barely more than 100 kilograms of 20 per cent purity uranium fuel stockpiled, which would not be enough even for a single nuclear weapon.

Nah, Israel does not have such capabilities so if the war is to occur it will be fought and begun by US (+ random number of assorted ass kissers). But the capability is another thing and the will another. US really doesn´t need such a conflict so the most likely scenario is that the talks will be continued...and Iran should exploit that: Israel wants the US to do their dirty job, but it is not in US interests and that gives Iran an opportunity to thrust a wedge between those two. But such move would require readiness for compromises as US has her own interests and does not want to see nuclear armed Iran so..
“I searched for God among the Christians and on the Cross and therein I found Him not. I went into the ancient temples of idolatry; no trace of Him was there. I entered the mountain cave of Hira and then went as far as Qandhar but God I found not. With set purpose I fared to the summit of Mount Caucasus and found there only 'anqa's habitation. Then I directed my search to the Kaaba, the resort of old and young; God was not there even. Turning to philosophy I inquired about him from ibn Sina but found Him not within his range. I fared then to the scene of the Prophet's experience of a great divine manifestation only a "two bow-lengths' distance from him" but God was not there even in that exalted court. Finally, I looked into my own heart and there I saw Him; He was nowhere else.”

there is no progression in negotiations where one side demands the same and the other side stays the same. All threats of war and so called "last chance" are irrelevant. A negotiation that is shadowed by threats of war is not a negotiation, its more a cover for a raid/war!

Both the US and Iran want to buy time. Neither wants a war. Which is why these talks will continue in a way that will make the talks drag out.

I believe that in negotiations, Iran will do the following:

*Suspend 20% enriched uranium temporarily as a confidence building measure.
*Ship whatever 20% stockpile it has to either Russia or China in exchange for fuel rods for its research reactor

In exchange Iran will receive:

*The EU will temporarily delay the oil embargo scheduled for July, as a confidence building measure
*Iran will be allowed back into the SWIFT system
*Iran will be allowed to continue enriching uranium at 5% level


I think this is what the first and second round of talks will achieve.

Don't get me wrong buddy but I have issues with those points you've made..Why should Iran go back to joining EU financial institutions again after all they've done to Iran? What's the guarantee that they won't do it again if there's a fallout in relationship in future?

And also why should Iran ship their enriched uranium out to another country?? Isn't that an insult to Iran's sovereignty and even worse, an insult to all the scientists that have suffered(assassinations etc.) to achieve such capabilities and capacity? Such demands can only be made to banana republics who's sovereignty is determined in the capitals of the West.

Will the Chinese or any of the parties at the negotiating table agree to ship any of their enriched nuclear elements into another country just because Iran doesn't trust their nuclear "intentions"?

Iran won't go back to the SWIFT system.They can stuff it..There're other alternatives and will be exploited.Once bitten, twice shy..If they've used that once against Iran, what's to say they won't use that again when it suits them???

I see these talks as an escape route for the West after their stupid escalation on Iran at Israel's behest..They've realized this cannot go on for long and is costing them financially/strategically in the long term. They NEED to de-escalate and there going for "talks"..They have absolutely NOTHING to offer Iran at the table as Iran can now enrich their own 20% uranium, don't self sufficient in gasoline production etc. In essence, their previous offer to provide Iran with 20% enriched uranium is DEAD!

The grand bargain will be for them to lift ALL SANCTIONS and declare/sign that they'll never use that against Iran ever again.They should also accept Iran as a nuclear state. That will be a solid trust/confidence building measure..

Now, knowing Washington for what is it, they're incapable of achieving any this...Thus, the tensions continues until it becomes strategically untrainable to continue..One side will have to buckle down somewhen..Lets wait and see..;)

Iran is not going to stop enriching uranium. Period.

Which Iranian administration wants to be seen as weak and pathetic? Clearly Ahmadinejad under much more immense threats of war didn't halt uranium enrichment, so why should they today?

Sanctions are not having the effect that the west wants it to have, this is clearly seen. It actually might have the opposite effect, turn many nations away from western financial institutions and create another financial system to counter it.

I think Iranian leaders know that the west is not negotiating, they are dictating. As long as they will dictate terms, these negotiations are just for show and the Iranian leadership knows this.

The western leaders want to show their people that they tried all the diplomatic options and negotiations , when in reality they were dictating terms.

The real question is can they wage war. If they can't wage war, meaning it will be much more destructive for them, then Iranian leaders should dictate their terms instead.

I hope that Iranians have learned the lessons from the past. Making a step back would amount to showing signs of weakness and therefore drawing more animosity from the west. The EUSRAELIS have gone too far. Indeed they have shot themselves in the foot since the non aligned (non-aliened) + Russia + China are pulling out of the western financial platform. The west could be compared to the TITANIC, the "too big to fail" concept is fraudulent!

Until Iran develops (with other countries) alternative financial system, its important to be able to use SWIFT again, both for exports and imports. Cant remain financially isolated forever, especially if its Iran's own decision, it would mean tens of billions of loses every year.

That said, Iran have to invest significant time and money in SWIFT alternative, China-Russia and other countries would be interested as well IMO.

You are missing the point, Iran has already admitted in some ways that it is willing to stop enriching 20%, because to Iran that is an area where it can compromise.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/story/2012-04-09/iran-nuclear-talks/54121378/1?csp=34news

Until a SWIFT alternative actually is developed, Iran needs to be brought back into the system. It cannot go on trading rice for oil and other barter goods.

You are also missing the fact that both sides want to reduce tensions and develop an acceptable agreement. Don't listen to the news articles about "demands' and posturing that is just negotiation tactics.

In reality, Iran wants to be able to keep enriching to 3.5% and is willing to concede 20% enrichment for the time being as a concession. The US wants to achieve a diplomatic breakthrough and wants Iran to stop 20% enrichment, but it hasn't asked Iran to stop 3.5% enrichment. That right there is a huge shift from negotiations of the past.

In the end, I think the negotiations will have Iran stop 20% enrichment, it may or may not ship its 20% stockpile for fuel plates for research reactor, and allow more intrusive UN inspections of Fordow.

In return, Iran keeps enriching at 3.5%  and expands its nuclear program, Fordow facility is allowed to continue operating under more intrusive UN inspections, it delays the EU oil embargo, returns back to SWIFT, and the easing of sanctions. The US probably will not remove the oil sanctions, however, they might grant more exemptions to countries that buy oil from Iran as a way of "easing" the sanctions.

This way both countries get to achieve some of their goals and reduce tensions and talks of war.

Immortal,

I honestly don't think they will stop enriching 20% enrichment of uranium.

If they thought that they ever would have to do this, they would have done it much earlier before all these sanctions. To do it now would be absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable from an Iranian , strategic and from a psychological point of view.

I'll say it now, Iran will not stop enriching 20% uranium. We have been terrorized, sabotaged, sanctioned..etc you name it, they have done it, except a full blown war.

The ONLY option that the west has next is a full blown war, period. Iran has shown it can withstand sanctions, terrorism, sabotage and still go full steam ahead. On the other hand the west is decaying from within. They're financial system is hanging on by a thread and anything could trigger a complete meltdown of their fiat system of currency and financing.

Now if war is the only option they have left, who has more to lose?

I think Iran is in a strong position and should not give in to ANY demand and should rather make demands instead that sanctions be lifted, terrorism halted, financial and economical sabotage halted, before they allow 'confidence building measures'. ex let inspectors inspect fordo or other locations.

While it may happen if Iran wants to avoid war in the near future, however they would be on the loosing end:

1) Iran relinquishes part of its absolute rights in civilian nuclear tech.

2) Iran wouldnt have anything else to concede, outright of closing nuclear program altogether. And what they get in return? Just a slightly eased sanctions?

That would be a loss-loss to Iran, with nowhere to go. Oil sanctions still in place, with Iran having nothing else to offer in negotiations. War isnt averted, just postponed.

The only possible way I could see if Iran stops 20% enrichment, gets fuel from the West, signs additional protocol for even more intrusive inspections. In return ALL sanctions are removed. That would be a slight loss for Iran for the bigger gain of restoring its full trade rights. But you know what? It wont happen. US wants regime change at all cost, therefore no reasonable concessions from Iran will work. 

War is incoming anyway (other alternative - Iran's surrender, is a no go for Iranians), therefore any common sense concession without full sanctions removal wont give anything substantial, only postponement.

iran will not stop enriching uranium to 20 percent because U.S and co. will not provide grantees that the fuel for tehran research reactor will be delivered with out conditions to iran as needed by medical and agricultural industry. it would be quite stupid to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent with out these grantees, which were not provided the last time iran agreed to ship the enriched uranium stock pile and stop the enrichment (tehran deceleration).

all this talk about 20 percent being dangerously close to enriching to over 90 percent is bogus. it goes with out saying that in the nuclear industry if a country can enrich to 5 % it can also enrich to over 90 %. this talk is for public consumption in western countries. the media there purposely hide small detail like this.

i feel as if these negotiations are a flop before they have even began due to the recent statements by US and co. The tehran deceleration has already shown the true face of these "western" "politicians" for those who have eyes to see.

These negotiations are definitely bogus and a flop. It's just political posturing.

It is meant to be used for public consumption purposes. Whoever can maneuver the best, can use this as an excuse or a reason why the otherside can not be negotiated with.

 the west wants enrichment to be halted and bunch of other things, which are not even the root cause of the problem or even what worries them.

Iran on the other hand knows that the west is doing everything in its power to overthrow the regime, and push the Iranian public into submission.

The only thing people should talk about is that if war is a possibility, if it is not, then the west has to concede, not Iran.

I'll say it now, Iran will not stop enriching 20% uranium.

This is where you are incorrect and you let your bias influence your way of thinking. Iran has already said prior to negotiations that it would stop enriching to 20% once they have enough stockpile to adequately address the energy needs for research reactor. Furthermore, it was said that producing beyond that amount is not economical. The whole reason Iran began enriching to 20% was to provide fuel plates for the research reactor. Once that is done, it will stop enriching to 20%. So it only makes sense Iran would use it as a bargaining chip to receive concessions in return.

Your own analysis is faulty and based not only on your 'bias' but also on poor thinking.  Iran has already born the initial fixed costs of manufacturing these plates.  The costs of NOT manufacturing them and subsequent facility clean up along with the opportunities to sell these abroad are a couple of the more obvious items not factored in your simplistic thinking. 

Now given that, and given what we hear through the media and also given how the pieces sit right before the negotiations start (perhaps Friday), each party has hustled to eke out as much strategic advantage as possible to not only come into the negotiations with a 'better' hand but also allow the possibility to bargain away that hand if it warrants.

At the end, Iran cannot and will not bargain away hard fought independent capabilities esspecially given the sanctions and the inherently unreliable sources (read 'The West').  This is  not a bargaining chip but an item built into the very fabric of Iranian thinking and national security.  These are the basics that anyone who has followed Iranian strategy over the years clearly understands.  In this context, the very existence of sanctions paradoxically strengthens Iranian internal thinking that independent capabilites must not only be created but PRESERVED.  'Dismantlement' is an idea for fools to believe, unless the said dismantlement has served it's purpose and doesn't impact gained capabiliities. If Iran agrees to stop 20% enrichment, it is because there are alternatives.  That said, gven the fixed costs born by Iran to manufacture these, what will be asked in return will be extremely steep indeed.  Lifting of sanctions, in my opinion, is not sufficient because all that does is open up Iranian markets while the current state of sanctions also deprives the West of enormous opportunities, currently taken advanatge of by Iranian domestic companies and perhaps China.

Well lets not sugar coat matters too much either. The sanctions are having less of an impact due to the rise of the BRIC countries (among which most notably China) but the world is still dominated by western powers and Iran is not home safe. We're only deceiving ourself by downplaying the west's influence on friendly states. China and Russia could make a grand bargain with the USA and EU and retract any opposition to further sanctions and consequent military action. The USA and EU could offer them more than Iran could ever do in terms of commerce and security guarantees. It would be very short sighted by the Eastern powers but, then again,  starting a new cold war over Iran would be too.

You are confusing manufacturing of plates with enrichment of 20%. The research reactor already has been supplied with fuel plates. Iran has said once it reaches enough stockpile of enriched uranium for future plates it will stop enrichment of 20%. This will ensure that the research reactor has fuel plates for the next 20+ years. Thus Iran said once an adequate stockpile is achieved there is no reason to continuing producing beyond that because it is not economical.

Don't confuse stopping enrichment of 20% with meaning that Iran will dismantle its 20% enrichment program. Iran can reverse the process to enrich to 3.5% as it has said.

Quote
Abbasi said production of uranium enriched up to 20 percent is not part of the nation's long-term program — beyond amounts needed for its research reactor in Tehran — and insisted that Iran "doesn't need" to enrich beyond the 20 percent levels.
"The job is being carried out based on need," he said. "When the need is met, we will decrease production and it is even possible to completely reverse to only 3.5 percent" enrichment levels.

Again, you are confused. The 5+1 are much more interested in halting/rolling back the 20% enrichement than the application (fuel plates),  Also Iran has long ago justified long term 20% production for other applications: http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2011_05/Iran.

There's no sugar coating. Sanctions are very tough and there's no doubt about it.  So is running a 5 min mile.  Both can be good for you.  That said, I always come back to the scenario where as if sanctions never occurred--where do you think Iran will be today in terms of geo-strategic sway AND independent scientific and industrial progress?  I'm of the belief it will be lagging significantly in both.  Yes, Iran's capabilities today have come at a VERY high price but that's how things are.  There is always a price to be paid.

That is irrelevant because Iran will halt or scale down 20% enrichment most likely anyway. So why would it not attempt to secure some concessions? Again all this temporary and if Iran sees that it is not to its advantage it can resume 20% enrichment. Iran signed the Additional Protocol in 2003 I think it was, but after seeing it was not to its benefit it withdrew. Iran suspended uranium enrichment and when it saw it was not to its benefit it resumed enrichment.

So for Iran making a compromise in exchange for concessions and reduced tensions is something it wants.

The problem is that in true negotiations, there's a give and take in order to reach a consensus. In Iran case, there's no such thing as "negociation". On one side they declare war (this present embargo is an act of war) and dictate what Iran should do regardless of any international law and treaty. So, can any reasonable person call this a negotiation? The issue here isn’t even the nuclear issue, it’s about hegemony. Later on they will come back and ask Iran not to produce medicine, buildings, cars because it may be a threat to their hegemony.

theres is no such thing as true negotians with west

west wants to dominate the world and Islamic Iran is not allowing west to dominate the world

west wants Islamic iran to be ruled by puppets like shah

Till west does not get its way new sanctions n threats will be added on daily basis --if Islamic Iran gives in even 1 Milimeter then its all over for Iran
west knows how to grab the rest
in short-NO NO NO CONCESSION
abide by NPT rulesn treaty

Do you really think Iran is a UAE? or a Kuwait? Amerikkkka's influence in the region is declining.... only to reach arab puppet states that are in turn slaves for the US and the zionist regime with absolute not regional influence!! Iran will never back down on its nuclear programme... not even to scale down 1 % let alone the "20%" scale you mentioned! The more the amerikkkans push the more Iran enriches! Dont confuse politeness with weakness! Iran will not tolerate anyone telling it what it should do when it should do it or how it should do it..... the more amerikkka and izrael push the more motivation it gives Iran!
Im Sunni by mind, Shia by Heart, and Muslim by soul! La Ellaha Ela Allah!
